Israel's healthy food culture has found roots in Toronto via Aroma Espresso Bar. The coffee chain, born in Jerusalem, now has 5 locations in and around our city, including locations at Yonge and Eglinton and the Annex - where the photos posted below were taken. For breakfast and lunch in Israel, it's all about eggs, salad and cheese, and that's exactly what you'll find on the menu at Aroma. The power breakfast comes with 2 eggs, mixed greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, feta, cream cheese, and bread and butter. Some of their salads include - sweet potato lentil, warm chickpea, quinoa, mozzarella, and of course the chopped, with cucumbers and tomatoes - the famous salad you will see everywhere in Israel.
Not to be missed is their alfajores, two shortbread cookies sandwiched between a rich caramel spread. It's one of the best things you'll ever eat. Get a few.
